Special Feature: Products Sally Recommends
Makes 2 dozen cookies
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 egg white, whipped
2 2/3 cup flaked or shredded coconut
2 tsps. vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsps. almond extract
Preheat oven to 325°F. Line baking sheets with foil; grease and flour foil. Set aside.
In large bowl, combine condensed milk, egg white, extracts and coconut; mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets; slightly flatten each mound with a spoon.
Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Immediately remove from baking sheets (macaroons will stick if allowed to cool); cool on wire rack. Store leftovers loosely covered at room temperature.
Garnish with ½ maraschino cherry, nuts or chocolate kisses. Press the garnish into the center of each macaroon immediately after baking.
